Groener's department can now offer support and assistance to other company locations from the PA-New Jersey Systems Integration Group (SIG). In New Jersey, SIG has added Tyler L. Duffy and Thomas A. Ladd as quotation specialists, while new hires Karen Anne O'Grady and Chris O'Shea are focusing on systems sales.
Zoe Paine has been appointed director of rentals and production sales for PA, supervising its rental sales and business development groups. She was previously director of rental project development for PA. Patrick Eagleton, formerly the product manager for the Robert Juliat product line at PA, has been named marketing support manager for the newly formed marketing group within PRG.
PRG has also announced the appointment of Tom Sorce as vice president of sales, based in Los Angeles. The industry veteran, who was most recently general manager of PRG's West Coast Audio Group, says his first task in his new position will be to help organize and facilitate the sale of PRG's used professional audio and lighting gear, including to international customers unable to afford new equipment.
